Teppanyaki conjures up images of flying eggs and flinging fried rice. In Japan, it is actually in relation to the iron hot plate the food is cooked on.

1 Litre of Bier – Prost!

A website had a special on for Sailors Thai’s tasting menu so I rounded up a few peeps and off we went. It was 8 courses for $69 including a glass chardonnay by Ross Hill Wines or pinot noir by Bass Phillip Wines.

It was a bargain, how could I say no?

Chicken & Potato Curry Puff with Cucumber Relish

The starter and it was quite impressive. The curry puff was crunchy, filling excellent and I really dug the relish.
